Cilantro Chimichurri

Cilantro Chimichurri


OOOOOh so good. There are 1000 different things you can do with this sauce… ok, ok, ok, close to 1000. From marinades to salad dressing, from topping off a taco to dressing up your morning eggs! It makes the best marinade for chicken and pork, as well. ENDLESSNESS, I say. Easy, quick, and so tasty. It reminds me of Mojo, the sauce they serve with salted potatoes in Spain and the Canary Islands. They make Mojo with pureed grilled green or red peppers. Maybe I’ll post my Mojo sauce soon for your summer cooking. But in the meantime, this sauce is super drizzled on my marinaded Carne Asada Flank Steak and Rainbow Rock Salt Potatoes. If there are leftovers, it is delicious on your summer salads as a dressing, too.
